Following the word that Eddie Murphy will host the next Oscars, word from New York is that Velvet Jones might return to Satruday Night Live.
According to the New York Post's Page 6 "Work is going on behind the scenes for Murphy to pop up on the NBC show when his “Tower Heist” co-star, Ben Stiller, hosts Saturday night, we’re told. Murphy’s hosting the next Oscar telecast, which happens to be produced by “Tower” director Brett Ratner."
Murphy hasn't been back to Saturday Night Live since 1984.
A feud erupted between Murphy and SNL creator Lorne Michaels, when David Spade took shots at Murphy's career back in the day.
But let's be honest, if Lorne Michaels was still in charge when Eddie Murphy was on SNL, there would be know way that Murphy would have dominated the show and probably would have stunted his comedic growth, (Sorry Kennan Thompson, but make sure you talk to Eddie about his "Half" routine from"Raw before you get married).
Time will tell if Murphy will be seen on SNL, but it would be a welcome return.
